Darwin was the setting for an archaeological outing for the Museum children’s club, PastFinders during Sports Week. Children left Stanley early on Wednesday 27th February and made their way to Goose Green to take part in the Kids Sports before making the short journey to Darwin.
Following a packed lunch at the Goose Green racecourse, we were met at Darwin by Rob Phillpott and David Barker; visiting archaeologists conducting a survey of the buildings and areas. Commissioned by the Falkland Islands Museum & National Trust, Rob and David had been at Darwin for a number of days before PastFinders arrived, but hoped that their interpretation of the site would maybe aid them in their final published report.

To mark 200 years of Charles Darwin, PastFinders (plus drivers and helpers!) travelled to Port Louis for the day on the 14th March 2009. The aim of the day was to take a look at the area where Darwin came ashore from the Beagle and the subsequent flora and fauna that would later play a key part in his research. Interestingly enough, although Charles Darwin and his work are very famous, not many people know that he actually spent more time here in the Falklands, than in the Galapagos Islands!
